Description We have offered this exemplary wine for more than two decades and the multitude of awards over the years – and the 5-Star reviews – speak volumes. It is our bestselling sparkler by a mile. Roche Lacour winemaker Laurent Mingaud works his magic amid the cool hills of Limoux. Here, the monks of Saint Hilaire are said to have mastered sparkling wine methods in 1531, centuries ahead of Dom Pérignon. Bottles back then were fragile and didn’t travel so their success remained a secret. The cuvée is rich in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – like Champagne – and the wine is oak fermented – just like Krug! It’s an expensive technique (so rarely practised) yet important for extra depth and complexity. Enjoy on its own or with deserving crudités and canapés.
